Le Kilt: A lot of pictures on a grey day will often look dull, needs some sunlight to compare...
a grey day is ok, it helps show what the lens is like wide open. i think it is the senosr size / lens aperture that is letting it down
Buzzzman: A 45 mm lens is not a portrait lens. A 45 mm lens is just a cropped 45mm image-nothing more The reason Longer lenses are used in portraiture, are flatten out facial features.- a 45mm on any small sensor won't do that. So- if it was produced only to emulate a portrait lens-- it is a complete failure. Max headroom- you shouldn't tell others they don 't know what they are talking about,, when obviously, you don't know what you are talking about. .Believing 45 mm lens is the same as 90- on that small sensor is is just flat out wrong... This is one of the most misunderstood terms in Digital Photography. Hey- i believed a 50 mm lens on my Nikon DSLR was equivalent to a 75m (1.5x)for several years, before I realized I was wrong... If you don't believe me -just google "crop factor. Buzz
this is very confusing. buzzman seems so convinced by this, but he is wrong? how can someone be that sure of something that is incorrect, and why would he think that?
i ask this because to me his answer doesnt seem true from using a medium format 180mm lens on a rb67 and a 45mm lens on the mico4/3, but it´s bizarre that people have such different ideas on this.
